No they can't fire you, but you must keep making your doctor's

appointments and be sure your doctor writes a note you can leave at

the office where you work. If you can't do your

(for example: A back injury) then it's up to the company to find

you a job in their company that you can handle.

I suggest you phone the Labor Relations Board and ask them a few

questions so you are sure you are on the right track.

Good luckMarcy
